MLB Injury News:
Colorado Rockies center fielder Dexter Fowler has been
nursing a hand injury over the past week. He told Thomas Harding of MLB.com
that he continues to hold out hope that he’ll avoid a stint on the disabled
list, but the Rockies are getting to the point where a decision must soon be
made regarding his status.
"I want to play," Fowler said. "I'm
frustrated over the fact that it still hurts, but at the same time I don't want
it to get worse. It's still sore. I could wear the soreness, but at the same
time that's their biggest fear, that it will go the other way. It's getting
better, but I don't want to regress."
Fowler suffered the injury when he was hit on the hand by a pitch from Washington Nationals starter Ross Detwiler last Thursday. He’s since
played sporadically, as he continues to experience pain in his right ring
finger while taking cuts at the plate.
Initial X-rays came back negative, and another round was
taken yesterday and also confirmed that no fracture or break has since
developed. Still, Harding notes that the Rockies run the risk of overusing
Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer – outfielders who are dealing with ailments
of their own – by keeping an unavailable Fowler on the roster.
